After sparring with nearly every other houseguest on Big Brother 10 and angering many viewers for leaving her newborn child to come on the show, Libra is finally in trouble. The controversial HG's reign of dominance came to a halt after her plan to oust Jessie succeeded, making her the primary target of Michelle, who happened to win the Head of Household.

Tonight's Big Brother 10 episode features a huge fight, lots of self-righteousness, returning houseguests, and two not-so-surprising nominees.

Sunday Night's Alright for Fighting

Screaming is a common occurrence in the Big Brother house, but this episode featured the mother of all fights. First, Michelle and Renny get into a fighting match over an innocent comment Renny made laughing at Michelle studying the wake-up calls. Libra and Keesha walk in and there's a screaming match with Michelle and April over the betrayal and Jessie's eviction. Jerry continually shouts “Screw you people,” complaining about people breaking their word when they swore on the Bible or a cross or their children.  Jerry and Michelle continue to doubt Dan's faith, saying he'll burn in Hell, to which Memphis and Libra are left agape. Dan wisely spends the whole fight hiding in his room with a pillow over his head.

The Chinese Have a Weather Machine!

For this week's food competition, the current HGs compete in a game show against former HGs by answering true or false questions about current events outside the house. The returning HGs include Bunky, Jase, Janelle, Mike Boogie and others.

Basically, the current HGs are very bad and get themselves on slop for five out of the next seven days. They didn't know that Brett Favre is now a New York Jet, that Britney Spears is not releasing a country album, that Cheech and Chong are reuniting, or that the Chinese have a weather machine and have banned bald and smelly cab drivers from the Olympics. To their credit, Renny knew gas wasn't over $6 a gallon, Michelle knew the earthquake was real and Keesha knew Paris Hilton didn't say something stupid in a political ad (although the question should have simply been whether she was in a political ad, which she was). Therefore, the house won food on Tuesday and Sunday, slop the rest of the week, and a special feast with beer and wine, while six former HGs each won $1,000.

The Nominees Are…

We all knew Libra was going to be nominated. The second slot was up for grabs. Memphis talked Michelle out of nominating Dan because Memphis and Dan are in the best alliance ever. Renny wants Michelle to nominate April because she's not trustworthy. But in the end, Michelle puts up Keesha as well, since she was Libra's co-conspirator to evict Jessie.

Tuesday on Big Brother 10, the Power of Veto is up for grabs. If Libra doesn't win it, she's almost certainly gone.
